Yeah, nope that is not going to happen CP3 is staying in Houston.  Also the Lakers only have enough cap space for two max players so they would have to trade a lot of players to have James, George and Leonard.  LeBron for Ball is impossible because there is a huge salary difference between those two.  

Actually it would work out well for both sides because the Cavs would save a ton of money and cut some of their big money while the Lakers are one of the few teams who could actually absorb a massive contract that Lebron has. However, the odds of this happening are next to impossible, and even if they got Kawhi and Lebron, I don't think the Lakers could beat the Rockets, let alone the Warriors. If I was Magic I would sign maybe one max guy and a ton of great bench players like Trevor Ariza or Jamal Crawford, that way my young guys can build off that work ethic. The only person I would be open to trading is Brandon Ingram, because at worst I could get Kawhi for him, and as a Laker fan, I have seen nothing from him to believe that he is the second-coming of KD.

But if the Cavs do a sign and trade instead of just letting him go without getting anything.  I'm pretty sure they want a player in return that is a lot better then Lonzo Ball.  Heck they can get a Lonzo Ball type of player with the eights pick they have in the lottery, even though its been a long time since someone decent was drafted with the eights pick.

That's why I would make them give me Kuzma or Ingram on top of Lonzo. The Lakers will probably try to throw in Deng and his god awful contract, so that is a big no-no for the Cavs.

Again, I don't think this will ever happen, but the factors are intriguing.



Bring on NBA2K19 it will be cool playing with all these new 2018 NBA drafts picks. 2018 NBA Draft looks way better than the 2017 NBA Draft. When trash players like Markele Fultz and Lonzo Ball are #1 and #2 and quite a few lousy players going in that draft. 2018 Draft must be an improvement upon  going the weak 2017 Draft. 



The Suns select Deandre Ayton aka Shaq 2.0 with #1 draft pick. The guy is a beast, 7'1 and he looks very strong. The Kings select Marvin Bagley III with #2 draft pick. Hawks selected Luka Doncic and traded him to the Mavericks for #5 Trae Young + 2019 first round draft pick. The Grizzlies selected Jaren Jackson Jr. with the #4 draft pick.

1. DeAndre Ayton (Suns)

2. Marvin Bagley III (Kings)

3. Luka Doncic (Hawks to Mavericks)

4. Jaren Jackson Jr.  (Grizzlies)

5. Trae Young (Mavericks to Hawks)

 

*21 draft pick controversial Duke player Grayson Allen known for his cheap shots was selected by Utah.

The Lakers are pretty much stuck with Deng.  Also the Cavs already have their own Deng in Tristan Thompson.

Grayson's stock rose a lot most people had him as  a second round pick before the combines.  But due to his performance in the NCAA finals Donte DiVincento's stock probably rose more then any other player.  Glad that the Mavs got Luka even though he got drafted pretty high he could end up one of the biggest steals in the draft like Jordan was in 84 with the third pick also.  Michael Porter Jr.  could also become a steal but even if he doesn't end up being that good the Nuggets will make the playoffs next season and will be a very good team for years to come.



Well George is staying in OKC. LeBron going to the Lakers is more then likely very slim now. They probably will not sign anybody worth mentioning. So even with DeAndre Jordan leaving, the Clippers will still be the better team in LA next season.

Does LeBron James have to join another superteam?



40 million dollars a year for Chris Paul!



It looks like LeBron to the Lakers may be a done deal.
